Auto Curators was founded by Paul Townsend in early 2015. Formerly of Shine On Auto Detailing, Paul spent nearly 10 years building his first venture from the ground up, within a fledgling industry. As the business blossomed, his reputation for quality spread, and he gained extensive technical and business expertise of the detailing industry.
In early 2015, the business was ready to expand and Auto Curators Ltd was born. The business has continued to thrive, ready for the next stage of our expansion.
A life long petrol head, Paul’s love of detailing started many years before he could drive a car. Inherited from generations of engineers and craftsmen, an ability to focus on the little things that make a big difference was inevitable.
Running his own business was a long term dream, realised when he established Shine On Auto Detailing. Since then, Paul has been asked to travel extensively around Europe to perform his art and is proud to have worked on some of the most amazing vehicles ever produced. His portfolio of cars and clients is as varied as it is impressive, his wealth of knowledge also having been applied to boats and aircraft too.
Paul’s talents have also been recognised by the media, having worked extensively with North One Television for the Fifth Gear programme, both on screen and behind the scenes. The piece about preparing new cars, first broadcast on The Discovery Channel in 2012, can be seen below.
In 2014, Paul was asked by the BBC to appear with Chris Evans at Carfest South in front of an audience of 30000 people, and broadcast live as part of The One Show to approximately 4 million households.
